Are You A Foster Kid?
Topic: Think about your future
Sometimes youngsters are put in foster care if the alcoholism and other addictions are too extreme at home. There comes a point when you "age out" of the system. That can be tough especially if you had a poor relationship with your foster family. Often though if the relationship was good you can visit and get advice from them. I was talking to a young adult who was in foster care. She is studying to be a nurse, is married and has also a baby in need of foster care in her home. She told me that she was not happy when she was in foster care but she made up her mind that she, as a human being, deserves a good life and that she was going to make it happen. What I do want to tell you is that there are now colleges and other learning institutes that provide services to graduates of foster care. They listen to your complaints, needs and give you the opportunity to hang out with other students who were in foster care. To read all about it go to or copy and paste it into your computer:  https://www.nacada.ksu.edu/Resources/Academic-Advising-Today/View-Articles/Foster-Care-Alumni-on-Campus-Supporting-an-At-Risk-First-Generation-Student-Population.aspx
